There were a number of trends spotted on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night, including thigh-high slits and plunging necklines . But the most important trend was a color choice that had real symbolic meaning. While this year’s Golden Globes and Grammys had notable dress codes that allowed celebrities to illustrate their solidarity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, it seems that standing for equality is ingrained in some people’s style choices regardless of the sartorial rules. Whether done intentionally or not, white was the preferred color of celebs like Jane Fonda , Margot Robbie , and even Timothée Chalamet . White has long been considered a nod to one of the earliest women’s movements, the suffragettes, who were fighting for the right to vote. Because of this, the color has come to signify fairness, equality, and hope. This symbolism was especially evident during Hillary Clinton ‘s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, which led women to voting booths in white suits to show support for the female presidential hopeful. White roses played an important role at the 2018 Grammys in late January , as a group called Voices in Entertainment made a call for artists to carry the flowers. “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy, and resistance,” Voices in Entertainment wrote in a letter sent to invitees of the ceremony — and clearly the trend has stuck. Here’s a look at all of the celebrities who wore white for the night.

The TV presenter took to Instagram to question the success of the Time's Up movement
For the 60th annual Grammy awards , celebrities are continuing to use their voices — and fashion — to promote the #TimesUp movement . On Sunday night, a number of attendees wore white roses, in one way or another, for an important reason. Following the Golden Globes blackout that kicked off awards season with a statement of solidarity, artists have found another way to express their unity around the cause of gender equality with a white rose . A group called Voices of Entertainment sent a statement to attendees of the event to explain the push to wear the accessory, writing, “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy, and resistance.” White carried the same powerful meaning throughout Hillary Clinton’s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, as the candidate and her female voters often wore white as a nod to the suffrage movement. And now, on the red carpet , it’s adding an additional beautiful touch to all of the glamorous looks. From the evening’s host, James Corden , to first-time nominees Khalid and SZA , here are all of the stars showing off their white roses.

Oprah's Golden Globes speech was so presidential in delivery and meaning, it left social media wondering if she might run, and debating whether she should.
In light of the Time's Up movement, which celebrities marked by wearing all black to the 2018 Golden Globes, one wonders: Why can't smart women love fashion and be activists for change?
All eyes were on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday, as both men and women arrived at the awards show wearing black for a statement that has nothing to do with fashion. In support of the Time’s Up movement and the women who have spoken up about their own experience of sexual assault, harassment, and gender inequality, the red carpet was a sea of black dresses and all-black suits. Yahoo Lifestyle was on the red carpet to catch up with the stars taking part.
Women are at the forefront of the 2018 Golden Globe awards , with an all-female television cast leading the TV categories in nominations, and a highly-anticipated red carpet that’s more than just about stars making sartorial statements. But the most important question pertaining to what women like Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria wear to the 75th annual award show will be why and not who. In part with the rest of initiatives put forward by the Time’s Up movement, it’s been requested that women walking the red carpet not only wear black , but also take the opportunity to speak out about standing issues of sexual harassment. In line with some of the ideals of Witherspoon’s previous #AskHerMore campaign, the dress code is meant to initiate questions beyond those that are typically superficial. From Debra Messing and Meryl Streep to the ever-stunning Issa Rae , here’s a look at the fashion that’s serving a function for Hollywood’s leading ladies.
